Beef on the hoof

The pasture critters have made it through winter.

I keep these critters busy with grain so the cattle will be able to enjoy a bit of cake. (cattle cake)

she's giving me "the look"

The cattle still have thick winter coats.... notice how they all have their hind-ends toward me? Not a good picture day. :)

I hate to say it, but when I look at this one I see steak.

Have a great weekend.

What no White Faces? I like angus too but there is somthing about a polled hereford. Do you have dairy cows as well for you own milk consumption?

I have been wanting to get more into Cheese making and the like, and did not know if you have been down that trail yet.

Jim I sold my last hereford cow in the fall. For the same amount of money I feed into a hereford, I can feed a black angus...and that's what brings in the most money right now. I have nothing against herefords, they are tasty beeves. Black angus are the "flavor of the month" right now. :)
I do have some black baldys though...they just aren't in the picture.
No dairy cows..they are too much work. :) I have friends who keep dairy herds so I can get milk and cream from them.
I have made cheeses.. Not aged, just soft. It's really tasty.

Have a good weekend Jim!
